Hello !

I would like to use a recording of "Peter and the Wolf" which I had found in this site (https://archive.org/details/PeterAndTheWolf_753), and I was wondering if it were on the public domain or creative commons ? Does something could answer me ? Or point me another recording which satisfiy my requests?

Thanks !

I really have no idea. USA copyright law currently states: "Works created prior to 2/15/1972, will be governed by state law. Protection typically comes from state statutes, state copyright common law, misappropriation, or unfair competition." That means the state where Sony USA (current owner of Columbia) is incorporated would determine this. Sorry I'm not a lawyer...just a music lover. Bob
